Today, 26% of South Australia's electricity comes from wind and the State leads in domestic solar take up. Voluntary sector agreements to reduce emissions were pursued with a variety of industries and organisations.

LCAL provides innovative finance for business to fund energy efficiency improvements as part of the transition to a low carbon economy. Low Carbon Australia works with financial institutions to leverage private funds and finances eligible businesses for the upgrading of commercial buildings, industrial plant and premises and distributed generation projects.
